So we had a typical summer lightning storm, and at one point during the storm our power went out. The problem is that after the storm we now have a light in the bathroom that doesn't work, but there is current running to that part of the house because the plugs in there still work. Now I don't really know many details about what makes the power go out, though I know that it's that either the high voltage circuit breaker by the plant is tripped or the local (house) circuit breaker will trip. So the design for this light is basically two wires, where I assume that one is the hot wire and one is to ground, and so it looks like whichever is the main wire connects inside to something, which then connects the two bulbs in parallel with conductive plates. Could it be that the circuit breaker didn't work in time and fried the wire connecting the light? I don't think that it has anything to do with the plates because I tried shorting one them to see if it was getting power, but it wasn't. Any ideas for trouble shooting? I am just a physicist, and have a limited background in electronics other than the ones I've become accustomed working in a lab (and doesn't help me in this situation), so I'm really lost as to what may have happened. P.S. Yes, I flipped all the switches in the circuit breaker back on.
